Twist Style Friday: Simsbury

Every Friday we feature one of the garments from the magazine in a post about styling. We suggest different ways to wear the garment in question using mock-ups from Polyvore. We encourage readers to tell us what they think about these outfits via our Facebook page or Twitter, and if folks want to make their own outfits, please tweet them at us with the hashtag #twiststyle. You can find all of the Style Friday posts here.


 


When I logged into Polyvore last night to look at shoes for today's styling post, do you know what I saw?? Sandals. Tons and tons of sandals. Working for a quarterly magazine as I do, I am somewhat familiar with working a season (or sometimes two) ahead, but somehow this still caught me off guard. Between that and my leaky roof, I guess we can say that spring is coming. Happy March!

 

I know that fall and winter are really prime knitter times, but handknits are dreamy to have around on cool spring mornings and summer sunsets by the water. This week's featured garment is perfect for layering, which makes it great for just about any season. The pockets make it extra practical, and the dipping neckline is just a teeny bit saucy. The color of our sample is pretty stunning, and though you could obviously make it in whatever color you like, something saturated really makes the simple shape and unfussy lace sing. Hello Simsbury.
